I am sooo fortunate. I moved onto this farm in 1978. I have never had a tick on my dogs or cattle. Not saying NY doesn't have ticks, just never a problem with our animals. We always treat the dogs. Now, I use Bravecto - a 3 month chewable tablet for the dogs.

Now I'm seeing articles that the Longhorn Tick (which is a mutated form of the brown dog tick) is moving closer to my neck of the woods. BTW Jeanne, the Longhorn is in New Jersey so be diligent.

While upstate may not have a big tick problem, Long Island has had issues with ticks for years! Lyme is very prevalent there.

Yes, Lyme disease is in NY. We do have ticks on deer & woodchucks & other animals. I'm just saying never on the dogs or cattle. But, my cattle do not have a lot of access to woodland. Although, I do a lot during deer season. I have always thought it was strange. Not complaining!!!!
